It might be argued that our readers are not be the best audience to answer this question, but let’s say you were at a party and walked into a room populated by the 6 members of The Association appearing in the following clip. Which guy would you target to converse with, as the band member most likely—relatively speaking—to be the coolest member of the band? From left to right:
- “The Cabinet Member”
- “The Guy Not Cool Enough to Be Playing a Vox Teardrop Guitar”
- “The Singer With the Crooked Mouth Who Looks Like He Should Be Playing One of the Goons in Straw Dogs“
- “The Shorter Singer Who Likely Instituted the Band’s Dress Code”
- “The Bass Player Who Looks Like the Canadian Member of The Rascals”
- “The Drummer”
I look forward to your choice and rationale.
